…and finally

Wowzers. I was here from the start too - originally just Ian and a lost password. I remember early PM chats with Asa in simpler times when we mainly discussed annual BBC power cuts - 20 years ago!

For all the reasons you cite for closing it - as a reader one became adept at skimming over the nonsense - because every so often there'd be a post that offered such fascinating insight it made it all worthwhile. Thank you for all you and the community have done here.

I haven't posted here in about 20 years. But BBC Four News titles? Now you're talking. Here's a fuller version of this I think - https://www.dropbox.com/s/hgx7rmdirme5oyq/BBC%20Four%20News%20Closing%20full%202003.mp3?dl=0

And while I'm here - one of the best intros ever was the 1 year anniversary of 9/11 and how they used the four notes from the BBC Four News intro and it merged into the BBC World News sombre theme. I wish I had a video of the whole opening. But here's what I have - https://www.dropbox.com/s/qlz5x81rjvmklkt/11092002%20BBC%20Four%20News%20Special.mp3?dl=0
